Thank you for the prompt reply. What we are observing is slightly different than what you stated.
We see in the UI that when a deployment starts a spinning wheel is presented which is what you would expect and stays that way until the child step completes. However, we have noticed that the UI will display a green check mark when there is some type of failure input needed on a deploy project step even though the project didn’t complete and is just awaiting input.
What’s interesting is that the Octopus UI does report the status once a project actually completes in the task log and will not let the parent project complete until all the underlying project deployment steps complete. The UI will display a spinning wheel icon at the parent project level until you resolve all the guided failures even though all the child project deployment steps display a green icon.
In some way the octopus UI is aware that there are pending tasks for the child steps yet the UI doesn’t reflect that. The screenshot below of a multi step project with child deploy project steps illustrates octopus is “aware” of the step status if you follow the timestamps at which messages are displayed in the UI task log.
Notice how there is a message about paused for intervention and later there is a deployment of release project completed successfully after the guided failure was resolved. Also the other steps that didn’t run into an issue report the step completing successfully and do not show a green check mark until receiving that status which is exactly the behavior you would expect to see.
